How can we improve Excel for Windows (Desktop Application)?

allow to make the background of a sheet transparent (except the tab)

this would be a simple way to create multilayer drawings with shapes
reasons for this idea:
-an employee or executive has usually no time to learn Illustrator.
- in the beginning, spreadsheet programs were a kind of Lego allowing a user to build a simple or very complex model easily.

    Not sure why you'd insist on using a spreadsheet program for drawings with shapes. I'm also not sure when an executive would ever make a drawing. They are usually only concerned with data summaries.
